Shortly after Lt. @GenFlynn joined the 2016 Trump campaign, someone began contacting reporters spinning a tale about having seen him being courted by a female #Russian spy.

(Thread 👇) Commentary by Brian Cates @drawandstrike theepochtimes.com/its-time-for-s…
@GenFlynn @drawandstrike This person alleged to several media reporters that he suspected @GenFlynn had been successfully compromised by the #Putin government.

@RealSLokhova is a lecturer and author at @Cambridge_Uni who specializes in #Soviet intelligence studies who ended up being dragged…
…against her will into the center of one of the biggest political scandals of all time.

The person responsible for dragging Lokhova into the middle of this scandal is Professor #StefanHalper, once a fellow academic at @Cambridge_Uni, now retired.

As #espionage & #Eurovision coincide, here's #Albania the 1st finalist in this #history thread.
(Also for my #Australia readers seeking relief from #ausvotes as you start your Saturday, it's impressive you convinced them your continent counts 😎)
Next: #Азербайджан #Евровизија
For #Eurovision #Азербайджан and #Spying studies, here's an article from @warisboring about Azeri #aviation being well-placed to use my #Soviet favourite (Foxbat) to work #intelligence against my #USAF (Blackbird).
Zoom zoom 😎💕

Next up for #Eurovision finalists with an #espionage twist is #Denmark, whose #Spying #Police (PET) scored a serious scoop in turning Colonel Oleg Gordievsky, the #Russian rezident (lead KGB controller), which later inspired actual #JamesBond plot points:

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

Four manifestations of political persecution & #censorship against #journalists in #Ukraine just this month: 1) prominent Ukrainian journalist is prosecuted for calling civil war in Ukraine "civil war" & for other media reporting on conflict in Ukraine. strana.ua/news/189367-vl…
2). The head of the #Ukrainian bureau of the #Austria ORF TV channel is banned from #Ukraine because of his reporting. orf.at/stories/311439…
3) A TV channel in Western Ukraine is investigated by the Security Service of Ukraine for broadcasting an interview with the most popular Ukrainian blogger who is based in Western Europe.

@JeremyCorbyn is a regressive. He wants to drag the country backwards to disaster.

This thread will examine his positions and explain how this will happen, using his espousal of causes as illustrations.

@UKLabour have the infants in charge. It’s too late to change now.

First up is the IRA and Sin Fein connection.
@JeremyCorbyn is said by cultists to have been responsible for peace. Nothing further from the truth.
In fact he will not touch moderates or Unionists, never met them. He was a parliamentary mouthpiece for the IRA during bombing. 2/
Next: Assad’s #Syria.
You know, those people who bomb children and gas them. The ones who killed 4,000 plus Palestinians this year alone.
Corbyn only loves the dead Palestinians who are useful against Israel. He won’t support the poor people of Syria cos his pal in charge. 3/19

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Excited to share my first piece in 18 months and in @ForeignPolicy, co-authored w/ Simon Miles, an assistant professor @DukeSanford, completing a book on US-Soviet relations during the early 1980s based on new Eastern bloc archival sources. 1/ foreignpolicy.com/2018/10/30/wha…
Context: @mike_giglio had an excellent piece last month on how the #Trump admin may be executing a strategy of "maximum pressure" against #Iran, partly inspired by the book "Victory" & its claim that Reagan used this strategy to defeat the Soviet Union. 2/ buzzfeednews.com/article/mikegi…
There's only one problem: "Victory" is not good history, to put it politely. The most basic critique is that the author didn't have access to US & Soviet archives when the book was published in 1994. You can find much harsher academic critiques online. 3/ amazon.com/dp/0871136333/…

Well done, @FoxNews. When there’s an issue with an ally, you were sure to book Rand Paul. He has a predetermined narrative for all things foreign policy - regardless of any development. His is a policy that would weaken America.
Rand Paul says we should never sell arms to any country unless it lessens the risk to the US and that selling arms to #SaudiArabia to use in #Yemen puts the US in greater risk. That is an absurd reading of the Middle East that demonstrates a lack of understanding.
Rand Paul said he’s furious over what Saudi Arabia did to #Khashoggi, claiming we should punish them on humanitarian grounds. But there’s never been a conflict or number of civilian casualties that he would support acting against, including selling weapons. It’s a double standard

Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

On this Day - 1939, the #Nazi-#Soviet Pact was announced in Moscow. As well as a 10-year Non-Aggression Pact, Stalin and Hitler agreed to divide central Europe between them. Here, Stalin toasts the pact with Hitler's photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann.
The Nazi-Soviet Pact gave #Hitler the green light for his plans to invade Poland: a week after its signature, German forces invaded their eastern neighbour. Poland's allies - Britain and France - responded by declaring war on Germany on 3 September. #WW2 in Europe had begun.
Two weeks later, on 17 September, #Stalin's Red Army also invaded #Poland, to claim the spoils promised by the Pact with Hitler. The two invading forces met at Brest-Litovsk, where a joint Red Army/Wehrmacht parade was held, with German and Soviet troops happily fraternising.

1.) Professor Antony Sutton author of 'The Best Enemies Money Can Buy'

Wall Street/City of London financiers used their banking institutions & their industrial enterprises to:

a) Build up Nazi Germany, financially and industrially;
2.) Help finance & sustain the Bolshevik Revolution.
Build up Soviet industry during Lenin's Five-Year Plans, both through finance, technology/industrial transfers and technical assistance.
3.)They also continued to build the Soviets throughout the entire Cold War as we allowed them to walk away with V2 rocket technology & also provided them with MIRV technology for ballistic missiles
War or the threat of war equals good business for the Military Industrial Complex!

#OTD in 1940, the #USSR began the second #WWII mass deportation of #Polish citizens from eastern Polish borderlands occupied by the Soviets on Sept.17, 1939. Polish civilians were deported by the USSR in four waves that occurred from Feb. 10, 1940 through mid-June 1941.
Each deportation had a distinctive character & targeted specific populations of Polish people in occupied eastern Poland.The deportation of April 13 targeted small farmers, tradesmen, civil servants, and the families of those who had been arrested or taken as POWs by the Soviets.
Many of those deported on April 13 were family members of the #Polish officers, policemen, and intelligentsia who were executed by the #USSR during the #Katyń massacre; roughly 80 percent of those included in this deportation were women and children. #WWII
